Nearly 70 young athletes supported two great clubs with much history over many decades in the past.
In the Under 13 girls this was headed by junior schools international Abigail Reid, posting out a fine solo run of 8 minutes 58 secs for the 2.5k at Mile End. Amana Oguntuga, who has stepped up her running training whilst in lockdown in the absence of her football, posted an excellent 9 mins 22secs. In this age group we had a huge turnout bolstered by many of our Under 11s supporting this event as the minimum age was 10. Jasmine Hall, another missing her swimming, ran an impressive 10 mins 15 secs, tearing up the fields at Church Langley. Even Rebecca Wright, much more a thrower/hurdler/jumper, gave it a go. Another notable effort was year 5 girl Faye Owers, who produced an excellent 10 mins 16 secs.
